In most private participation in infrastructure (PPI)/ public-private partnership (PPP) projects, public sector agencies have the right to grant concessions to private parties to finance, design, build, operate and maintain infrastructure assets. However, public organizations are increasingly subject to conflicting demands imposed by their institutional environments. This makes compliance impossible to achieve, mainly because satisfying some demands requires defying others. This points towards the fact (a) that competing institutional logics may exist in PPI/PPP and (b) that the management of these competing logics is central to success of PPI/PPP. However, to our knowledge, almost no study of PPI/PPP has addressed in depth the precise effects of competing institutional logics and their subsequent management. In this research, the author intends to explore how competing logics exist in PPI/PPP and how public managers could cope with them.
